SAAVI Services for the Blind’s Statement on COVID-19

Dear friends, supporters and colleagues:


Saavi Services for the Blind takes very seriously the health and safety of students, staff and visitors. In order to play our part in preventing the spread of COVID-19, we are announcing that all in-person center training is temporarily on hold. We will be moving to virtual training and are swiftly working to implement this. Classes, tutoring, and more will be offered via computer or over the phone. This comes as Arizona Governor Doug Ducey is ordering all Arizona public schools to close and many other public places are following. We are closely monitoring COVID-19 in Arizona and continue to follow all advice and protocol. We are working very hard on informing everyone of the best practices and communicating our contingency plans clearly with our staff, students and partners. We will continue to stay alert to the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 in Arizona and will most certainly continue to take this matter very seriously.


We strongly encourage everyone to take all necessary steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19, by following CDC guidelines. This includes washing hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. For more information on how to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, click here for the CDC’s website.


We will continue to keep you updated as this situation moves along.
